We all knew Hermione would graduate first, didn’t we? Emma Watson, star of the “Harry Potter” movies, graduated from Brown University last week (sending out a cute graduation selfie); go on, say it with me: 50 points to Gryffindor!
It’s a good time for an update on our Hogwarts friends (thanks to EW for the idea).
Watson, in addition to writing graduation gift thank-you notes, will next be seen in “Regression,” a thriller from Alejandro Amenabar (“The Others”). Daniel Radcliffe, currently on Broadway with “The Cripple of Inishmaan,” has just signed to star in the film adaptation of Dave Eggers’ “You Shall Know Our Velocity” and has three movies awaiting release: “Horns,” “What If,” and “Frankenstein.” Tom Felton, a.k.a. Draco Malfoy, recently popped up as a a sickly young man in “In Secret” and a creepy young man in “Belle”; Domhnall Gleeson (Bill Weasley) starred in “About Time” and will soon be seen in “Star Wars: Episode VII”; Bonnie Wright (Ginny Weasley) was a voice character in last month’s animated feature “Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return.” And Rupert Grint, a.k.a. Ron Weasley, was just heard singing a pop song in the British animated film “Postman Pat: The Movie.”
Looks like they’ll all have plenty to talk about at the next reunion.
